Why it is always German player
That never pushes ready in Gunboat games?
Like every single time if there is a player that saves his orders early on and waits 24 or 36 hours without pressing ready? Is there any rule that you should not slow game down? Or it is up to players if they want to iritate all others by making a retreat in full turn, and then disbanding the same army/fleet just after that in next full turn?

Special thanks to ghug for fixing a bug in the 1v1 elo code that meant dropoffs weren't previously working properly... All from inside a train!

+1's are as welcome as ever, and I dare say ghug will post in a minute to receive his too.

Also congratulations to uclabb for re-entering the charts and knocking VI off top ;)

What the hell? I lost a shitload of gunboat games but still went up one spot???
Hellenic Riot (1574 D (G))

Gunboats have a weighting of 25% of a normal game on the Overall GR, so it's quite easy to balance out a few GB losses with a couple of decent FP results. I expect you dropped significantly on the individual Gunboat GR.
Yoyoyozo (104 D Mod)
06 Dec 17 UTC
your GR did fall, it's just that inactive player fell off the list so you got bumped up 1

When I click on the link it shows VI as #1 and no uclabb, does that just mean I (accidentally!) muted uclabb?!

Hey VI, your peak GR is still higher than uclabb’s, that’s got to count for something...

Uclabb's never even won a world cup except for the one he won. He's not that special.

Does anyone have the math involved in this because I am struggling to see how my GR fell so low and then 1 or 2 games can take me from 1000+ to 500 in a month.
Yoyoyozo (104 D Mod)

Well when you're that low, a game or two of doing well shoots you up. Everyone starts with a base 100 real GR points. Your GR points went up by about 24 real points, which took you past all the sub 110 newbies and now you're sitting where all the "average" players. So it'll be a little bit harder to rise from where you are now.

If you were to repeat your performance this month and raise another 24 GR points, it's take you to rank 350 from 597, which isn't nearly a big of a jump as it was from 1103 to 597 that you did this month. If you repeat your performance again the following month, you'd only go from 350 to about 220. Not to mention with a higher GR means you get less points from draws, so it'd be harder to get the 24 point increase that you original saw in the first place.

Long story short. It's a bit a competitive bell curve. You were on the easy part of the curve and now it'll get harder.

More gunboat musings, this time about opening strategy.
I hope some of the many GB players that are better than me have opinions about this, especially if they differ from mine.

I just finished my thoughts on the Western countries, I'll discuss the Eastern ones in a follow-up.

Starting a new game
Hello! Starting a new game with some friends, but we don't actually want to start the game till next week. But we want to all be registered and in the game. I've made the game but I don't want it to automatically start when we are all in. I've never made a game before, is that what will happen? Or can I leave the game open for a few days before I hit the "start" button?

Thanks!
